Antronie Scott died Thursday evening, Feb. 4, 2015, after being shot in the torso by a member of the San Antonio Police Department.

Investigators in San Antonio, Texas are investigating the police-involved shooting death of a 36-year-old unarmed Black man who was holding a cellphone, according to Reuters.

Antronie Scott, wanted on warrants for being a felon in possession in a firearm, was killed Thursday night as he was observed by a detective and a uniformed officer driving in an apartment complex, the report says.

From Reuters:

“As the uniformed officer approached the vehicle, he got out of the car quickly and spun toward the officer,” Chief William McManus told a news conference. 

“The officer shouted to ‘show me your hands,’ and as soon as that statement was made, you heard a gunshot and it hit the individual in the upper torso,” he said.

McManus said the officer, identified as John Lee, a 10-year veteran of the force, told him he thought there was a gun in Scott’s hand. But that object turned out to be a cell phone.

McManus said video from the officer’s dash cam did not record the shooting because of the way the officer’s car was positioned, and officers in the precinct have not yet been given body cameras. There is audio of the incident, according to Reuters.
